Welcome to Room 6, a Year 2/3 composite class. In our classroom we are continuing with elements of play-based learning, but we have now moved into self-directed learning activities that supplement our learning across all curriculum areas. This continues to encourage self-motivated and engaged learners.
We are so lucky to have Mrs Dee Karn in the mornings when we focus upon literacy in the classroom. This is supported with visits to the school library where we can choose books to enjoy at home and also to share in the classroom with our classmates. This is followed by Maths where we engage in a range of activities that help children to form connections across the curriculum. To start off our year we worked together to create a ‘Room 6 Treaty’ where we linked what behaviour we wanted in the classroom to the Westshore Values (P.R.I.C.E.).
Highlight of our day during the summer is our daily visit to the school pool – great on a hot Hawkes Bay day!
